johnson has more. >> reporter: almost 20% of u.s. adolescents have trouble sleeping or are sleep deprived. a study in the canadian medical association journal looked at more than 4,000 adolescents. those who had trouble sleeping had a higher body mass index, larger waist size, higher cholesterol and blood pressure. those who just didn't get enough sleep had higher body mass index and larger waist size. a high sleep disturbance score was associated with higher consumption of fried food, soft drinks sweets and snacks. the authors conclude poor sleep hygiene amongst adolescents appears to be associated with increased cardiovascular risk and they say improving sleep hygiene early in life may be important for the prevention of cardiovascular disease later in life. for cardiovascular disease later in life. i'm dr. timothy johnson. >> wow. >> how do you feel about our job right now? >> great. >> scary. >> i feel great about it. >> every story we do about sleep deprivation freaks me out. >> i can survive on five hours a night. teens need nine hours. ironically the school day, done a lot of resear

for gary johnson. host: and this tweet also speaks to that. guest: it sounds like the caller is on board with the clean hands principle. when the whole process looks a little dirty to you, that is a pretty good reason not to vote. on this point, gary johnson, who was the libertarian candidate in this cycle, running on the slogan "throw away your vote, vote for me. -- a vote for me." there are many who feel that neither party is speaking for them and a third-party candidate is a great way to voice that sense. third-party candidates already know their vote will not influence the outcome -- the outcome of the election. they are on board with the idea that their vote is expressive. host: candidates. johnson was our guest on "washington journal" just a couple of days ago on monday -- candidates. johnson was our guest on "washington journal" just a couple of days ago on monday . on candidate gary johnson was our guest just a couple of days ago on monday. you can see that in our cards. next caller. caller: to become of voting is like aon playground -- to me, voting is like a playground and the

. >> this is a challenge to the 1954 johnson amendment preventing nonprofit charities and churches from endorsing or supporting political candidates and was added to the tax code by senator johnson at the time. some say it was way to silence the critics of his policy. an attorney which is organizing the movement says the law is unconstitutional. >> the i.r.s. has no business making a theological determination that certain top ins are off limits if you are having church on the weekend. >> organizations like americans united for a separation of church and state say the johnson amendment must be upheld to provide the divide between faith and politics. >> what is at stake is the integrity of churches. they are not political action committees. people do not go to church if the purpose of hearing who to vote for. they go there for spiritual solace. they good for personal instruction to learn about their holy scriptures not to be told who is the best president. >>heather: this is the 5th year for public freedom sunday, and the number has thrown threefold from last year, with the goal to get congress to

%. what do you think about the fact that gary johnson, a libertarian candidate, is probably going to be on all 50 ballots, and the conventional wisdom is he is going to draw from mitt romney and it makes a difference in colorado and it makes a difference in virginia. it will make a difference in north carolina. does that worry you? >> no, it doesn't worry me. >> they're not going to throw their vote away when we have an election here that's about the future of america. i don't see that happening, candy. this is a widely debated thing in 1980 with john anderson, gary johnson. >> sure, but ross perot made a difference. >> sure. >> they think that perot widely lost. >> we don't have a third party candidate anywhere near the name recognition or the popularity of ross perot or john anderson. i just don't see that happening. in fact, i see that it's almost a nonfactor, so i'm not worried about it. >> let me ask you about the new economic figures that came out. unemployment dipped below 8%. something i'm sure republicans celebrate as well. does it not undercut what has been the central t

, proctor & gamble, johnson & johnson. caught in the glare of the national spotlight, alec tried to change the subject. >> you know, i think the entire debate needs to be reframed, and really what alec is, is a bipartisan association of state legislators -- we have legislators of all political stripes coming together to talk about the most critical issues facing the states and trying to come up with the best solutions to face some of the problems that we're having. >> alright, so your point is it's not a partisan organization. >> but alec is partisan. and then some. >> in the spring i got a call from a person who said that all of the alec bills were available and was i interested in looking at them. and i said i was. >> lisa graves, a former justice department lawyer runs the center for media and democracy, it's a nonprofit investigative reporting group in madison, wisconsin. in 2011 by way of an alec insider, graves got her hands on a virtual library of internal alec documents. she was amazed by its contents, a treasure trove of actual alec model bills. >> these are the bills that were pr

beauty about what he does. i have another source is a former cia agent named larry johnson had told me that camino, the cia covert an awful lot from karl rove and the way his deniability and office operations he does. he's both very commit very visible, he's something like a 70% name recognition united states. that's it you justin bieber. or we'd all we'd all probably know what he does. and when you go back over history and look at the thing starting to unfold in the election, he has deniability of one level after another. to me, the story became interested in a way because most people thought karl rove was finished in 2008 in the bush presidency started to come to an end. he had been forced out of the white house in 2007. he was the prime target in the two biggest scandals of the bush era, the valley plan affair in the united states attorney scandal. bush left a 22% approval rating from lowest in the history of the united states. and even top republican strategists like adderall and said that his version was tainted forever. no one would ever want to be a bush republican and work with

the money and the johnson not fall but we got that. we found from our research, when you talk about it in that terms, here is what the president sold to the american people on the economy. not only did not create the jobs, it created a lot of debt. spent a lot of money, not a lot of results. that is our messaging. we tried to hold elected officials to their record and also for the promises they have made. that is why a lot of politicians do not like super pacs. >> one of the things that we talk about in this class is targeting. living here, between the york and philadelphia, you will not see many of these. potentially, pennsylvania has been a target state. right now, neither side is concentrating too hard. it is important to remember, there is a lot of money concentrated to a small number of states, and ultimately, a small number of people in those states. that is a port for everyone to remember. the important point of campaign finances and the unintended consequences, students in the class now that is one of my pet peeves. unintended consequences of well- intentioned legislation. w
